Mar 07, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Elsevier, a provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has launched InOrder, a cloud-based order sets solution that enables clinicians to author, review and publish orders in a collaborative environment.
"InOrder combines a highly efficient, easy-to-use content management workflow solution for hospitals' content development and technology teams, with hundreds of evidence-based, highly usable order sets that can be used 'out of the box' or customized as needed," said Dr Jonathan Teich, Elsevier's Chief Medical Informatics Officer. "InOrder's localization feature allows users to create order sets from their hospital preferences by incorporating orderable items directly from their existing EHRs, including their current workflows and terminologies."
"Evidence-based order sets facilitate best practices in diagnosis and treatment, thereby enabling healthcare organizations to improve care quality, support standardization, and achieve meaningful use," said Nancy Fabozzi, Principal Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "Providers will value a well-designed, technology-enabled solution based on trusted content that leverages proprietary clinical systems, workflows, and terminologies that are designed to accelerate product implementation, integration, usability, and clinician acceptance."
"I strongly believe that an advanced order set solution can lead to improvements in patient care," said Carol Steltenkamp, Chief Medical Information Officer, University of Kentucky HealthCare, an InOrder beta customer. "We were eager to implement InOrder by Elsevier because it streamlines the entire process of creating, managing and maintaining order sets, and ensuring that all order sets are based on current evidence-based information and best practices."
InOrder includes: Access to relevant evidence-based answers from ClinicalKey, Elsevier's clinical insight engine; Advanced collaboration tools for order set development, maintenance, access and tracking; Tailored, concise ordering focused on the most common scenarios; Availability across technology platforms enabled by a cloud-based delivery model; Localization tools to incorporate hospitals' clinical terminologies and import existing order sets; Enhanced clinical guidance and evidence within the set; Quality metric indicators that highlight orders important for guidelines and metrics, the company said.
"We developed InOrder with our customers top-of-mind and a goal of providing a superior solution that would positively impact patient care and support physician workflow," said Jay Katzen, president of Elsevier's clinical solutions business. "Our focus was on delivering a quality, metrics-driven system that was easy for clinicians to use. Clinicians will have the flexibility to manage their own workflow and order sets, access content that includes CDS guidance and regular updates, and utilize a layout based on the way they think and work."
